4 Shelf Indoor Mini Greenhouse – TSP Item of the Day — 6 Comments

  1. could this greenhouse be used outside in colder areas to help peppers an tomatoes grow?

  2. I plan to use this inside of my unheated Texas Prepper 2 style greenhouse for added protection during the few weeks of actual well below freezing winter weather this year. I plan to keep the lights listed above and seed starting mats turned on during those nights. I did this in an unheated shed last winter, and it worked pretty good. We generally don’t go down below 27 or 28*F except for about 2 weeks a year when we hang out around 12*F at night and 32*F or so during the day. With indoor use and some duct tape on the seams that split, it’s been in use for several years now. I use removable zip ties to tie the wire racks to the frames and that substantially improved stability. I use it as just a regular shelving unit without the cover during the summer – it is light and easy to move around the food forest for wherever I want some shelves for a bit. I don’t know if I have this particular brand, but I suspect they are all about the same. Thanks, Jack.

  3. I got this for Christmas and the lights should arrive today. Plan on growing some lettuce, spinach, and arugula in doors for salads until warm enough to grow in the garden.

  4. Thanks for the recommendation! I’ve been looking for something like this, even the next day I got the $37 price!

  5. Orscheln Farm and Home (recently bought up by tractor supply) had these advertised for $25 fiat in their weekly ad. (with a regular price of $30.)
